First Strokes

When I was 11 my parents signed me up for the Ikaika waterman’s camp. At first I dreaded going and begged them to let me stay home but after the first day I was hooked and ended up going back a couple more times. Ended up getting a “scholarship” at the end of my last camp to join the squad team and haven’t looked back since.

Off the Water

I mostly procrastinate schoolwork, sometimes I get it done. I work on cars, read books, and watch Instagram reels for hours. I hang out with family and friends and go on an occasional hike.
